Well, I can help, but first you have to do a better job of explaining what your data looks like and what you want to do with it.
Does the data consist of fields in fixed positions (e.g. alpha field is in positions 1,20 and numeric field2 is in positions 25-29)? If so, what is the starting position, length and format of each field?
Or does the data consist of alpha1, blank, alpha2, blank, numeric3? If so what is the maximum length of each field.
Can there be one alpha field followed by a numeric instead of two alpha fields followed by a numeric? You really need to do a better job of showing all of the possibilities for the input records you have to deal with if you want a complete solution.
What do you want the output records to look like exactly (fixed fields? delimited fields?).
It would help if you used the code tags for the data as you did for the control statements. _________________ Frank Yaeger - DFSORT Development Team (IBM) - email@example.com
